Biographical Sketch: Kerry Osborne began working with Oracle (version 2) in 1982. The early part of his career was primarily spent as a developer using OCI Fortran, Pro-FORTRAN, PRO-C, PRO-COBOL, Oracle Forms, etc. Eventually he saw the light and started calling himself a DBA. For the past several years, he has been focused on understanding Oracle internals and solving performance problems. He is an OakTable member and is the author of an upcoming Apress book on Exadata. Kerry is also a co-founder of Enkitec, an Oracle-focused consulting company headquartered in Dallas, Texas.
Title: Do It Yourself Exadata, Is It Possible?
Summary: The topic of building a generic version of Exadata comes up frequently. The idea is attractive because the hardware components used in Exadata are well-documented and readily available. One of the potential advantages of this approach is the components can be purchased for less than the list price for Exadata. Building it yourself also allows you to modify the hardware specifications as you choose. If you want faster CPUs or more memory, for example, you can make those changes. But is it really possible to reproduce (or come close to) the performance provided by Exadata? This presentation aims to answer that question. The presentation will compare the contribution of the various optimizations provided by the storage software vs. the contribution provided by the hardware components, including covering some scripts for monitoring/measuring Exadata optimizations. An on-line demonstration, which illustrates the features specific to Exadata, will also be included in the presentation.
